Hear and Act
The Upward Look

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock.” Matthew 7:24-25 NASB
This wonderful story Jesus told is all about obeying God’s Word. A wise person hears and acts upon it. When one builds his life according to God’s teachings found in the Bible, then one will be able to stand firm even when the troubling storms of life come. Life is filled with stress, pain, heartache, adversity, fear, uncertainty, and so many more storms. The wise person chooses to be firmly grounded in the truth of God’s Word.
Lord Jesus, teach me from Your Word so I may stand firm in the midst of life’s troubling storms. I desire to hear and obey Your Word.
